Revelation 21:4 “And God Shall wipe away all the tears from their eyes; and there shall be no more death, neither sorrow, nor crying, neither shall there be any more pain: for former things are passed away.”
On July 2, 2013, Edgle Cletis Webb slipped peacefully from this world into his eternal home, surrounded by his loving family. He was born March 15, 1929 to the late Pierce and Cora Webb in Wayne County, W.V. He was retired from Norfolk & Western Railroad. Edgle was a man of steadfast faith, who stood firmly for our Almighty God, served proudly in the U.S. Army, and served lovingly as the patriarch of his family. He was an avid outdoorsman who loved hunting, fishing, farming and wood-working. His love for gospel and bluegrass music was evident in his guitar, banjo, and mandolin playing. Along with his parents, Edgle was preceded in death by siblings, Arvil Webb, Truman Webb, Mavis Borders, Edna Grant, Okey Grant, Augusta Smith. He was also preceded in death by his step-son Steve Thompson. Edgle is survived by his devoted wife of 59 years, Christine Dow Webb. He was a loving father to his children, Fontella (Charlie) Brewer, Mitchell Webb, Patricia (Butch) O’Brian, Diana (Mickey) Thompson. and step-son Richard (Beth) Thompson. He was pawpaw to his grandchildren, Travis, Taylor, Annie, Katie, Stuart, Wesley, Rachel, Wade, Dalton, and Steve, and great-grandchildren, Karson, Bryson, Addison, Gracin, Max and Mitchell. The family would like to thank friends Joann Rowe and Connie Butcher for their assistance over the last several years, and the staff of JJ Jordan Geriatric Center for their care and compassion during his final weeks. 2 Corinthians 5:8 “We are confident, I say, and willing rather to be absent from the body, and to be present with the Lord.” Funeral services were conducted 10:30 AM Friday, July 5, 2013 at Young Funeral Home Chapel with Pastor Tom Kitts and Pastor Richard Maynard officiating.
